Alan Fisco, president of America’s Newspapers and president and CFO of The Seattle Times:


 “We are so appreciative to all our legislators who have been supporting this bill, especially Congresspeople Kirkpatrick and Newhouse and Senators Cantwell, Wyden, Kelly and Schumer. Without their leadership and support of our industry, many of us would be forced with difficult decisions on further reductions of newsroom staffing and, worse, a growing number of news deserts. Passage of this bill is critical to giving us a fighting chance while continuing the great work newspapers do within their local communities. I also want to thank our membership, and industry constituencies that came together in a way that I have not seen in my entire career. Clearly, we still have a way to go, but this is a critical first step.”
